ZINGIBER MIOGA 2
A hardy Japanese ginger that forms small stands of lush, medium green foliage. Stalks lined with alternately arranged leaves resemble miniature bamboo. In late summer and fall, translucent, orchid-like flowers bloom from the base of the plant, below the foliage. The rhizomes are edible, though it is the tender shoots and flowers of this species which are cultivated for cooking.
